Make use of jQuery and CSS3 to apply a fancy menu active animation to Bootstrap 4 navbar. 

Well suited for one page scrolling website that allows you to switch between nav items just like a tabs component.

How to use it:

1. Load the necessary resources in the document.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/cdn/bootstrap.min.css" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/path/to/cdn/font-awesome/all.min.css" />
<script src="/path/to/cdn/jquery.slim.min.js"></script>
<script src="/path/to/cdn/bootstrap.bundle.min.js"></script>

2. Create a navbar in the document.

<nav class="navbar navbar-expand-lg navbar-mainbg">
  <a class="navbar-brand navbar-logo" href="#">Navbar</a>
  <button class="navbar-toggler" type="button" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#navbarSupportedContent" aria-controls="navbarSupportedContent" aria-expanded="false" aria-label="Toggle navigation">
  <i class="fas fa-bars text-white"></i>
  </button>
  <div class="collapse navbar-collapse" id="navbarSupportedContent">
    <ul class="navbar-nav ml-auto">
      <div class="hori-selector"><div class="left"></div><div class="right"></div></div>
      <li class="nav-item">
        <a class="nav-link" href="javascript:void(0);"><i class="fas fa-tachometer-alt"></i>Dashboard</a>
      </li>
      <li class="nav-item active">
        <a class="nav-link" href="javascript:void(0);"><i class="far fa-address-book"></i>Address Book</a>
      </li>
      <li class="nav-item">
        <a class="nav-link" href="javascript:void(0);"><i class="far fa-clone"></i>Components</a>
      </li>
      <li class="nav-item">
        <a class="nav-link" href="javascript:void(0);"><i class="far fa-calendar-alt"></i>Calendar</a>
      </li>
      <li class="nav-item">
        <a class="nav-link" href="javascript:void(0);"><i class="far fa-chart-bar"></i>Charts</a>
      </li>
      <li class="nav-item">
        <a class="nav-link" href="javascript:void(0);"><i class="far fa-copy"></i>Documents</a>
      </li>
    </ul>
  </div>
</nav>
